Abstract: The objective of this study is to identify and analyse the sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) benefits realised due to adoption of SSCM enablers. A hybrid modified step-wise weight assessment ratio analysis (SWARA) - weighted aggregated sum product assessment (WASPAS) approach has been adopted in this research work for the analysis. Modified SWARA is used to determine the relative importance of SSCM enablers while WASPAS method is used to prioritise the benefits. The findings of the study reveal that more attention should be on the adoption of environmental and regulatory enablers for effectiveness in SSCM implementation. It is also found that improved ability of 6R practices is a highly realised benefit due to the adoption of SSCM enablers. This research will help decision makers to effectively implement sustainability in their business organisation by developing a strategic action plan at the initial stage of SSCM implementation.
